The Archway Under the Manhattan Bridge is a public plaza in DUMBO, Brooklyn. It’s on Water St between Anchorage Place and Adams St. ///////////MORE DETAILS THE BAND Guided by a strong belief in life’s natural flow, Brown Rice Family gives listeners a distinctively organic world roots music experience, encompassing reggae, hip-hop, afro beat, jazz, rock, Brazilian, Latin, and funk music. Comprised of eight members hailing from Japan, Jamaica, Haiti, Nigeria, South Africa, and the US, the members’ diverse national backgrounds set the stage for a musical journey that straddles ancient and contemporary global sounds. THE ARTIST Samuel Jablon is an artist and poet who lives and works in New York City. Jablon received his MFA from Brooklyn College/CUNY (2013) and his BA from Naropa University, Boulder, Colorado (2009). Jablon’s work explores the discursive and sensual visuality of art and poetry. He has presented projects, performed, and or exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, The Queens Museum, Hauser & Wirth, Storefront for Art and Architecture, The Kitchen, Artists Space, and Yours Mine & Ours. Solo exhibitions include Freight + Volume (NY), Arts + Leisure (NY), and Diane Rosenstein (LA). His work has been reviewed in The Wall Street Journal, Interview Magazine, Art in America, ARTnews, Hyperallergic, BOMB, the Brooklyn Rail and others. THE GALLERY Every week at Live at the Archway, we assemble (tool-free!) Tfnf’s "The Space Station." It is a replica, in flat pack, modular, franchisable form, of the DUMBO gallery This Friday or Next Friday – “likely the tiniest, most inconsequential gallery in NYC, maybe on the face of the Earth” – founded and run by Nathan Sinai Rayman since 2013 as both a gallery and an artwork. We exhibit a new DUMBO-based artist every Thursday, and invite the public to engage through a live art component, where the artist and public create a collaborative piece together over the course of three hours. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=304181 The Archway Under the Manhattan Bridge The Archway Under the Manhattan Bridge
